lothian is in denver. morning, dan. mr. obama can't be feeling very good this morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, look, as you just played out in those sound bites, it was a big night for governor romney. some have suggested it was a make or break debate for him. he certainly showed up to fight. and voters agree he got the win in a cnn or flash poll, 67% of the voters said he won the debate. 25% saying president obama won. how did he do it? he challenged the president, never backed down even as the president appeared not to want to push back until the second half of the debate. take a listen. >> i just don't know how the president could have come into office, facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment, an economic crisis at the kitchen table and spend his energy and passion for two years for fighting for obamacare instead of fighting for jobs for the american people. it has killed jobs. >> for 18 months, he has been running on this tax plan. and now, five weeks before the election, he is saying his big, bold idea is never mind. >> reporter: now, carol, remember, ther

. and if you are an obama fan, you are scratching your head this morning. >> when you were watching it, if you are a romney fan, you are howling with glee. and an obama fan, you were howling at the tv. this was a president who didn't show up for the debate. when you look at how he presented himself, i've coached a lot of candidates. he violated every single rule you can think of. at his opponent. two, in his closing, he didn't look at the camera. three, he didn't answer anything that romney threw at him. and four, his energy level was just in the negative range. felt like he was in the middle of the black hole sucking all the energy out of him. it was just a bad performance. i was kind of amused by watching later on some of the pund ants who was basically having a seizure in the zl84suñ screaming about how obama needs to watch ms nbc. the fact is romney gave the president so many opportunities to just hit him hard and hit him back and the president looked at the call third strike each time. >> romney had a lot to gain from this debate. did the president have a lot to lose or is this okay? thi
on -- there is a lot of unknowns. i still think it is a very tight race and it is competitive. >> erin, all morning, the obama campaign tried to portray the campaign as mixing falsehoods with narratives, can that in any way re-write the debate impressions? >> it can, we saw the president do this the morning just after the debate thursday. they were essentially calling mitt romney a liar. and david axelrod said not surprisingly, he will say anything on a conference call that they did with reporters. and the ads are doing this, as well. saying that mitt romney is a flip-flopper, saying anything to get elected. that could be very powerful for president obama. >> and if you haven't seen this cover, mitt romney there at the debate podium, next to an empty chair. that image not withstanding, do you get a sense that those in democratic circles may have negatively over-reacted to the president's performance? >> you know, i thought a lot about that. and i don't think they did in this regard. the debate was seen by nearly 70 million people. almost a record, at least over the past 20 years or so. and you know
: being a patriot means paying more. here with is a donor to obama campaign good morning to both of you. let me get your reaction. you are vocal about the so-called class warfare rhetoric. you support and fund raised for. did you hear more in the economic patriotism line >> no, the president toned down the rhetoric in terps of the divisiveness on taxes. i thought governor romney did a good job explaining the impact of what the tax on the top three percent of taxpayers who are generally maul business owners and employ 25 percent of the nation's employees. i thought that the president focused more on the difference between the two approaches in terms of how they would close the gap on spending. and the president wants to protect policies and programs and i think that that was a big difference between the two of them. >> gretchen: heather economic patriotism to me. does it mean if you don't agree with the president you are not a patriot and is that another way of talking about class warfare. >> coercion is not patriotism and tax rates are not about patriotism. there is differences in what
for the president's debate loss. is that a strong enough come back for you? >> well, good morning, stuart, i will tell you first of all, i think it's a very bad path for the obama administration to go down and also the democrat party. when you think about we still have a lot of questions unanswered about libya, when you have a president's administration that sends out a u.n. ambassador susan rice talking about a video, when you have a president that stands before the united nations, six times he referred to a video, never said anything about a terrorist attack. and we have the special forces lt. colonel that's come forward and we know now that security was denied 30 days out before that attack occurred. so, i don't think that they should be throwing around the word liar too often, but it's kind of like in a football game when you get taken out behind the wood shed and shellacked pretty bad, blaming the referees or blaming that the grass was too high or the other team cheated. you have to accept the fact that you got beat en. swacked, can you-- >> that's a sec football kind of word that you c
and the 90% humidity for a while. this morning, president obama was on the move, leaving for los angeles, where he has a big hollywood fund-raiser later on today. that off the back of record for campaign 2012 fund-raising month of september, took in $181 million. he continues to hit governor romney for not telling the truth during the debate. ask the obama campaign trying to explain the president's performance on wednesday night. here's robert gibbs from meet the press. >> it is not rocket science to believe that the president was the disappointed in the expectations he has for himself. >> i think you are going to see a very engaged president that is ready and willing to call out whichever mitt romney shows up. >> reporter: at the same time, the romney campaign is wonder which president obama is going to show up? one said they fully expect the tough, chicago obama to be at the next debate. on the campaign trail, laying out some themes for the next one on one. >> every year, the median income in america's gone down, it's down $4300 a family and the average income of a family around $50,00

thing over with. >> in the spin room last night, and on the morning talk show circuit today, the obama camp was pushing a much different narrative, claiming mitt romney only won through rehearsed lines and lies. >> he may win the oscar for his performance, but he's not going to win the presidency for his performance last night. >> something that i think clint eastwood would be proud of. but on substance, his positions were just as empty as the chair that mr. eastwood had on stage. >> obama voters at this rally in denver did not completely agree, telling us while they will still support the president, they think romney scored with more than just style. >> i think he's out there and did he show some gravitas. i hope this will take us to the policy discussions. >> i think romney gave a good forceful discussion of the views that he interprets them, but i don't believe he was honest. >> in the debate, the president repeatedly failed to counter punch, missing opportunities to bring up romney's tax returns and offshore accounts when he pushed back on a charge about tax credits for jobs being

. >> here is what democratic strategist hillary rosen told me earlier this morning about the president's performance at that debate, which was panned by both critics and supporters. so listen to this and i want to get your reaction. >> you know, president obama didn't do so badly. he was much quieter, he was more thoughtful, he got a lot of facts out. it was just -- when push comes to shove, the policies for president obama, looking to support education, not wanting to see the health care cuts, those policies -- supporting women -- are much more popular than mitt romney's policies. i think that the obama team is going to double down on that over the next few weeks. >> brett, your reaction to that? >> well, you know, on wednesday night, those policies didn't look so good. a debate's about a competition of ideas, especially a political debate. so the president's got to be able to defend those policies if they truly are superior, and on wednesday night he didn't do a very good job of doing that. >> columnist david brooks and peggy noonan praised romney's performance after its missteps in
